put my bike in for a service last sunday, and told them my bottom bracket needed replacing, fast forawd to 7 oclock thursday night.

i get a phonecall saying my bike was all done, wooooohoo, but ive been all week without a bike whilst the weather has been grand. so anyways off i pop to pick my baby up, get there and say well how much was the bb to be replaced........ oh sorry mate weve serviced it but i advise you your bottom bracket needs replacing.

your kidding mate, thats why i put it in, how long we looking at to get it done ? three days for part to come then a day or two to change it. so another week with no bike, i think not mate.

going to see if a lbs can sort it for me.

not a happy bunny, especially since i have the coast to coast to do in 11 days time !

I see, you took you pride and joy to a car accessories, toy, and micky mouse shop for servicing by likely poorly skilled people. That was unlucky.
